Pygmalion

Dollar Drama Club's next production will be "Pygmalion" by George Bernard Shaw. This will be performed from Thursday 14th to Saturday 16th February 2019 in Dollar Academy Studio Theatre.


The play is set in London in 1913.

Plot: Henry Higgins, a professor of phonetics, is so sure of his abilities that he bets he can transform a Cockney working-class girl into someone who can pass for a cultured member of high society. His subject is Eliza Doolittle, who agrees to speech lessons to improve her job prospects. The one thing that Higgins overlooks is that his "creation" has a mind of her own.
